Excerpt: We use this on the computer to watch shows. We can sit in front of the computer for hours with this headphone. It provides soft pillows of comfort for your ears and keeps outside noise out. We have had ours for many years now, without any problems. The entire family uses it, so it's worth the price you pay for it. A great pair of headphones that I'm sure we'll enjoy for years to come. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: The bose headphones are too pricy and they are not worth paying that much for them. Plus the design is terrible and they are too big which I do not like. has good sound quality but I still would not pay that much for them. If you are a person that likes big headphones and a plain design then you should buy these headphones!
Excerpt: I used to work at an electronic store in Atlanta's airport and I sold the sure brand headphones and others just not the bose brand because they were sure's competition. So of course i had to listen to every Bose headphone to know what im talking about. Bose used a sound to block out the outside sound and thats ok and all but if you really need to block out sound you need to get the Sure brand headphone. They use faom and the go inside your ear.
Great Alternative to EXPENSIVE Noise Cancelling Headphones

Excerpt: Just out of gradschool, I started a new job where I would be doing an intense amount of air travel for work (think 2-3 weeks/month). Since I was still poor from gradschool, and the travel was starting almost immediately, I went to my local megamart and shopped for headphones for the flights. I compared several brands. I knew I could not afford the high-priced noise cancelling headphones, and was looking for something more modestly priced.
Excerpt: My quest for the perfect pair of headphones has been a long, hard and grueling one. Previous to this I purchased some skull candy crap based soley off looks and popularity and instantly regretted it. The sound was tinny and lacked and real punch. After that I decided to buy a mid-range pair of sennheiser headphones, because they are typically seen as the holy grail of audio technoloy.
Best sounding and most comfortable I've ever tried.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I've tried a lot of different head phones and these are by far the best I've ever had. Not only do they sound great, but they are unbelieveable light and comfortable to wear. Around the ear is a very soft leather with nice soft padding underneath. These are not technically "noise cancelling" headphones, but they do a great job of it (even better than a somewhat inexpensive pair of noise cancelling headphones I previously had).
Excerpt: It's true that audiophiles disrespect Bose because of all the hype that surrounds the brand. If it's important to you that you appear cool in these circles owning a pair of Bose headphones may be a problem. With that said I don't think Bose's reputation for expensive and over-hyped products prevents these headphones from sounding good. The actually do sound good, very good. There's a certain richness to the sound quality you get from these headphones.
Excerpt: I wouldn't recommend these headphones. Other noise cancelling headphones are alot better and cheaper. The sound quality is great and it keeps outside sounds pretty low. They're comfortable but not very flexible. They're really expensive for not being true noise cancelling headphones. They fall apart in about 6 months of use. When I was using them the leather on the ear muffs started pealing off and started irritating my ears then they just feel apart.
Excerpt: I used to have in-ear headphones but after a while they started to feel uncomfortable. Looking for another set I was browsing in Target store where I gave Bose 41213 a try. I was pretty impressed by the quality of the sound and found the price a good match to the quality. The only drawback is the somewhat cheap plastic.
Excerpt: These headphones have great sound reproduction. You'll hear the highest highs and the lowest lows in every song. Personally, I love acoustic music and it's very difficult to find headphones that reproduce the subtle nuances of a guitar or any other instrument for that matter. These heaphones are certainly studio quality!
